 Wow, such soul and spirit in the eyes...I see a blues singer, can't come up with a name, but....

 The reason you can't come up with the name is that I gave her a sex change early in the process, as soon as I saw I the way the picture was going (away from her likeness and towards whoever you see here).

 Nina Simone. But I was having such a good time playing with shapes, using a photo of her as a starting point or springboard, that I lost track of how far I was straying from her face into something quite different.
